ohh, that would be cool but im not sure if it would be as cheap as just ordering for myself :V Im limited to a dremel and hand tools due to the lack of space in my house (and my dad having OCD) otherwise i would just by a grinder (I dont think my dad would be happy with steel dust everywhere xD) How much would a 1m peice of a good high carbon steel cost?

Nice one, Ed.

To be honest i wouldnt want a full meter if you have it in stock :D I have made a few knifes in the past from scrap metal and after seeing your puukkos i really want to have a go at one. I have never seen such a nice knife design as well as a great execution by yourself!

So if you have enough decent steel for about 2 or 3 puukko blades i would be more than happy to take em off your hands :D

Down here, I wish we could carry 3" blades. Any blade, any time, unless you have a damn good reason, the police confiscate the knife and fine/prostitute you.
Same here in NZ; minus the prostitution of course.

I can't carry a knife otherwise I would get charged with posession of a dangerous weapon or some crap. Obviously, you can carry a knife if you're on your way to go hunting, fishing, or doing other activities that may require a knife.

Perhaps if we were allowed to carry at least small knives, I'd pay for one from jake.

Here in Ohio, I could walk around with a machete hanging from my belt and the cops couldn't say "boo". Anything up to 3.75" folding is legal to carry in your pocket. Anything larger has to be carried openly, same with all sheath knives. And switchblades/gravity knives are illegal, aside from an exception that allows law enforcement and active-duty military to purchase and carry switchblades.

I believe if you're a tradie, then you can carry knives, but I doubt anyone would notice a 2" folder clipped behind my belt. Still haven't noticed the bulky 3 1/2" switch behind my bekt buckle either...

Daltonultra, I once went into town with a 6 1/2" pig sticker tucked behind my belt, fairly well concealed. Guess I'll be good at concealed carry if I get the chance.

Ha, that thing on page eight is my daily CC knife, and is actually quite easy to conceal.. Thankfully my state has sane knife laws. Not that I can claim that level sanity, obviously^.

I tend to use the spring steel on larger blades anyway because it's pretty thick. The mower blades harden up nicely. I don't have a hardness tester but they come up plenty sharp and hard enough, comparable to a file pre tempering.

It's definitely illegal to carry any type of blade longer than 3 inches unless you can prove you need it for your immediate employ. Naturally we have longer kitchen knives :) but I'm not sure about import, and didn't want to give customs the chance to sieze Jake's handiwork on some silly technicality so this was the safest option.

Here's a kiridashi I made.. I orginally ground the tang flat but didn't like it.. Just didn't seem right. So I did some light forging on it to get the authentic look back, then after the heat treating rubbed it down with 400 grit sand paper, so some of the forge scale remains in the grooves.

I did some vine filework on the back of the blade and I think it looks OK given my inexperience, makes it nicer to hold and use as well.I finished some of the spine/filework to 400 grit and just gave the forge scale left in the grooves and recesses a light rub with foam backed sandpaper. I was going to do over it again but I thought the scale suited it, same with the tang

Inspiration came from a knife I found on a google image search, I just omitted the tangs and added the filework etc.

Thanks Jake; what should I work on improving next?

Edit: Bust my ass with manual tools because the only belt I have left is a worn 120 grit one, go check the mail, my 10 pack of 40 grit belts has arrived.. :roll: Lucky it was a little knife I guess
